Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Sierra Nevada Town, Andalucia, Spain your home away from home

Few people think of Spain as a skiing resort, but at over 10,000 feet above sea level, the mountains around Sierra Nevada Town are a great area for winter sports. However, during the dry summer months when the Spanish Costas are sizzling, a rental home in Sierra Nevada Town in the cool mountain air makes good sense too. With spectacular scenery yet within easy reach of the Moorish city of Granada, it is a different way to enjoy all that Andalucia has to offer.

It is a good size, well presented, had everything we needed and was very clean. The cottage is very close to the ski resort, just a 10 minute drive and a 20 minute drive down to Granada. Eva was a great host. We would certainly come back another year.
